The Science of Warmth: Unpacking The Heat Company's Three-Layer System

Have you ever found yourself shivering on a winter hike, fingers numbing inside your gloves, wishing for a warmer solution?

Or perhaps you've been capturing the serene beauty of a snow-blanketed landscape, only to have the cold cut your session short

The struggle for warmth in the great outdoors is real, and it's a challenge that The Heat Company has taken head-on with our innovative Heat Layer Glove System.

Let's dive into the science behind this warmth, layer by layer, and uncover how this glove system can transform your winter experience.

What is The Heat Layer Glove System?

Our secret to unmatched warmth lies in a trio of layers, each with a unique purpose: the Liner, Shell, and Polar Hood. Together, they form a protective fortress, adaptable to the ever-changing demands of the outdoors.

Whether you're scaling icy peaks or capturing the silent beauty of a snowy landscape, The Heat Company's commitment to flexibility, warmth, and comfort shines through in every stitch.

Let’s break down each layer.

1. The Liner: The Foundation of Warmth

The Liner is the base layer of The Heat Company's system, acting as a protective yet lightweight second skin. It's crafted from premium materials such as Merino Wool and Polartec® fleece, known for their thermal properties and ability to wick away moisture, keeping your hands dry and warm. 

The Heat Company offers a variety of liners to cater to different needs and preferences, ensuring there's an option for every type of outdoor enthusiast.

Some of the most popular options include:

  • Heat Tube Liner: Ideal for those who need warmth and direct contact, crafted with Polartec® Power Stretch® PRO™.
  • Tactility Liner: A lightweight, all-rounder made from 100% polyester, perfect for a range of activities.
  • Merino Pro Liner: A blend of soft wool and advanced fibers, offering supreme warmth and breathability.

2. The Shell: The Protective Barrier

The Shell is the second layer, preserving warmth and acting as the main line of defense against the elements. It's engineered with a blend of robust goatskin, wind and water-resistant microfiber, and premium Primaloft synthetic down. This design ensures a harmonious balance between insulation and mobility, making it indispensable for those braving extreme conditions.

Shell Options: Your Shield Against the Cold

  • Standard Shell: For adventurers needing a balance of durability and breathability.
  • Shell Full Leather & Shell Full Leather Pro: The ultimate choice for extreme cold, offering unparalleled warmth and protection.
  • HEAT 2 Softshell: A versatile option for transitional weather, blending the convenience of a fingerless glove with the warmth of a mitten.

3. The Polar Hood: The Ultimate Protector

The Polar Hood is the final layer of defense and adds an extra layer of insulation, designed to be used in the most extreme conditions. Made from water-repellent nylon, it effectively traps heat and blocks out cold winds and moisture. This layer is the ultimate safeguard, ensuring that your hands stay warm and functional no matter how severe the weather gets.
